Last night I went walking in the full-moon’s light, under a cloudless, starry sky.  Earth slept silently, wrapped in Her holiday snow-shawl, and I could just barely see Mount Antonito a hundred miles to the south – some simple joys of high-desert living in southern Colorado’s Delaware-sized San Luis Valley. Here, winter’s dead stillness invites reflection, contemplation and blessing-counting.  Crunching through the snow, I pondered mysterious traits of the Earth-healing zeitgeist: like its’ overwhelming time/effort/money-intensiveness, and its’ unpredictable manifestation, on its’ on terms, in miraculous, grace-filled ways.
